Final post for the day

Today was Michele's last day of vacation. We kick the day off by heading to the farmer's market.

Then up to Bruce and Brandon Lee's graves.

Saw this on the way out. I don't normally poke fun at the dead, but if my last name was McAssey I think I'd try to play it down a little more.

Squirrel and flower in Volunteer Park.

Later we actually got on our bikes and went for a little ride. After a short drive we arrived at Soaring Eagle Park we got in a decent little ride. I've never been anywhere that's so well marked out. Every single trail intersection had a sign post with one of these maps and a little tag pointing out the trail to each of the adjacent intersections. The new cranks and BB worked very well, no noise whatsoever and the added bonus of a lower Q(not that I notice or care).

Michele was having a little trouble adjusting to the mud, I think it's the first time she's really encountered it on any kind of scale.

Still plenty of fun and I think it will be a great place for riding reasonably close to home when the traffic from the evil empire is light.

It is the first time. the only other mud i can even think of is that small section of trail on the north side of the spokane river down from 5 mile, and that was always packed and slippery, not deep with ruts.

as you can guess, call has been uneventful so far.

love you...
